Alzheimer’s disease is relentless. So are we.
My mom was smart, funny, and compassionate. She enjoyed her life to the fullest and loved her family "tons." When first diagnosed her primary concern was not for herself, but for my dad, who had already lost his mom to Alzheimer's, and she felt so bad that he would have to go through it again with her. She has always been an amazing role model to me and to my brother, and an inspiration to her 7 granddaughters who adored her and who were her pride and joy. She never met her 3 great-grandchildren but they would have rocked her world.
Watching Alzheimer's steal my mom away from us, bit by bit, day by day was devastating. No one should have to suffer the indignities that Alzheimer's causes to the individual and no one should have to suffer the pain that comes with watching a loved one lose themselves to Alzheimer's.
That is why we walk.
